Fawning press overlooks Kamala’s stepkid’s devilish behavior
Dad Doug thumbs up grotesque baby art, cannibalism video
The darling of the presidential inauguration was Ella Emhoff, a privileged rich kid from Los Angeles who wore a stunning outfit and made cute funny faces while her stepmother, “Momala” Kamala Harris, assumed the role as vice-regent of the United States.
The willowy young twentysomething, in purple Batsheva brand dress, paired with an embellished Miu Miu tweed coat, amazed the glitterati. The Times of London anointed her a fashion icon and compared her to royalty.
Emhoff, 22, a student at Parson’s School of Design in New York, certainly recognizes an opportune moment to cash in. She’s monetized her Instagram to sell her wares, which include shabby chic bags and hipster art. Some are innocuous. Like a knitted Tweety Bird purse.
Some are not, and a close examination of her work on Instagram and choices in life lead one to wonder, just what kind of a daughter has Second Dude Doug Emhoff raised? (Emhoff married Harris in 2014.)
She portrays a baby as a candle with a lit wick on its head. And another whose head is deformed, hollowed and also candle wicked. Who thinks such art is worth admiring? Her father for one, who on Instagram gushes he “loved” this particular piece of work.
What about the devil horns or disturbing head coverings that mask her entire face? Certain young people sure like Ella’s shtick. The number of gender fluid Instagrammers hitting on the professed single artist is uncountable.
That her father is thumbing up the work is less reassuring.
Perhaps his creepiest dad move is giving his blessing to his daughter starring in a Hollywood music video in which Ella is suffocated with a pillow. And worse. It involves cannibalism of the worst sort.
If you want to see it for yourself, here’s Bo Burnham’s dark comedy short “Repeat Stuff” on Vimeo. Ella shows up at around 4:30.
Why would Los Angeles entertainment attorney Doug Emhoff allow his daughter to perform in such a macabre video. As it turns out, Ella’s mother, Kerstin Emhoff, runs the production company that made the 2014 short.
Besides music videos, Kerstin’s company PrettyBird produces content for Planned Parenthood.
“Kamala is very close with her husband’s ex-wife Kerstin - which is nice and so modern,” wrote internet sleuth Molly Pitcher in an online expose, since removed by Twitter. The remnants of a cached version is here.
“Sure, I get that it’s a parody about boy bands repeating vague words to put a spell over girls,” she wrote. But if you watched it - you saw the satanic turn that it took.”
